    comrpehension

    The message is clear: Different people can see the same events in dramatically different ways.
    In the work place this phenomenon is particularly evident when it comes to underperformance and failure. An outcome that an employee regards as satisfactory may be seen by his boss as entirely unacceptable. When a project is an unequivocal flop, colleagues disagree over the reasons why. These reactions, and their effect on workplace relationships, often become more problematic than the original events. As a result, how people respond to negative feedback is of great importance to managers and organizations and is a major determinant of career success.

    People disagree over reason for an unequivocal flop because__________.
    A. employees and employers look at things differently
    B. the differ in perspectives

    The key is B. I think the difference between A and B is A is the example given in the text while B means people in general. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, and A is not stated in the text. The text gives a hypothetical case where the boss may disagree with the employee, and also mentions colleagues. It does not state that "employees and employers look at things differently".

    Dear Raymott,

    Thank you very much for your explanation. Since neither "Thank" nor "Like" works, I am sending you the thank-you reply.
